Augusta State University has

Augusta State University has for years funneled many thousands of dollars down the toilet by “investing” in Georgia Public Broadcasting, with very little return. That includes paying a salary and benefits for an employee to sit in an empty radio studio…doing what??? And why is there so much signal trouble with the radio and television stations? Augusta State has many times gotten low marks for academic performance. Why doesn’t President Bloodworth and the university make academics a priority for once? Why doesn’t the Augusta Chronicle do the real story: the wasteful spending by Augusta State on a failing venture…instead of the usual p.r. crud? It’s your state dollars, folks.
